  1. To Stephanie

    I have seen some really terrible powerpoint presentations.
    I have created some really bad ones but I have made some really good ones too.
    He was trying to tell you how to make a really good presentation.
    To make jokes sometimes but you also have to make a good connection with them to.

  2. To Stephanie

    Yes, definitely I am bad at remembering things so I would write everything on the PowerPoint. Use powerpoint wisely. Make cuecards so that it doesn't make the presentation so wordy.

  3. Logan, Shavee, Nikki

    Yes I think we all have seen a terrible presentation before at least once in our lives.

    No because none of us have made a power point before.

    The main message to this video is they add too much info etc.

    I think you can just add the main points instead of the whole thing. So small ideas but think BIG.
